    i went the year before last and had a rite time, we booked early and ended up in a hotel called maria del mar and i think me and my mates were the only people there from inno, which at first we thought was a bad thing but ended up being a good thing as it was nice and quiet during the day so we could sleep but it had security so we couldnt bring any1 back to our rooms. We ended up going to one of the other hotels with some people we met think it was called casino something and right infront of it there was a football training ground which they said during the day allday it was well noisy and there was also a lot of work going on so they said it was hard trying to get some sleep when it comes to sleeping.

    we round a bar called homers bar right near our hotel which had dnb pumpin all the time and had cheap drinks and was a good place to start a night off and get party perscriptions sorted. Another place we found sold 1 euro jager shots and 2 euro jd and cokes but i cant remember what it was called but nearly got battered by the owner.

    The club had stupidly priced drinks i think it was 10 euro for a bottle of sam miguel, its a smallish club in lorret de mar not fucking ibiza. One night before we went to the club we ended up going to a club where it was 10 euro in but all u can drink which saved a lot of money.

    i recommend going on one of the boat partys cant remember how much it was but there was all you can drink lager and sangria and levela played on the one i was on was quality.

    something else i remember that ive nebver seen before is that burger king when it gets late just sell there burgers through a vending machine kind of thing and one night someone ripped it off the chains and started handing out free burgers.

    top man, yeah id guessed the clubs would be high priced, just have to get smashed before we go there, not gurning or owt like so cud be more expensive!!
    we booked a cpl of months ago im hoping we get a decent hotel if not im just gonna bring some ear plugs!

    yeah man definately be hittin a boat party if possible, i got a feeling the better ones get booked up before the holiday tho? not sure

    it is misleading fairplay they put barcelona on the flyer and u end up in some little town thats like 100 odd quid for like a 9 day holiday there lol!

    sun and bass or outlook next year i think!

    i remember getting off the plane when we got there and jumping on the coach and we expected it to be a 10 minute jorney but it was closer to an hour, its miles away from Barcelona. The boat party i was on we didnt book till we got there when i went i didnt see anything about booking before you get there. When i went there was a bar tent set up on the beach where you could book excursions, pretty cheap aswell and had dnb pumping allday long and you could hear it from quite far away on the beach, thinking about it i bet locals hate it when inno and HTID is on.

    Went in 08 & 09. Despite what people might think, it is a good laugh and definitely worth doing at least once.

    Hotels are nothing fancy (the food being the major downfall - thank fuck for those Burger King vending machines!) but definitely good value for the price you pay - it's not like you're gonna be spending much time in your room anyway. Drink prices in Colossus ARE ridiculously expensive but as someone’s already mentioned there are a shit load of all you can drink bars all over the place to get your pre-drink owwwwn. (There are literally thousands of little off licences that sell cheap alcohol, too.)

    Barcelona -> Lloret is a good hour or so away; cheap and easy to get the train though. (Train literally runs right down the coastline on the edge of the beach; you'll see nothing but tits for the entire journey - guaranteed.)

    Atmosphere / sound system is good; never saw any trouble when I was out there. Highly recommend renting mopeds and going exploring down the coastline if you're into that kinda shit, too. (y) Just don't turn your back on your belongings (even for a split second) when you're on the beach; some cunt nicked my camera and it's 1000 odd photos literally a few hours before I flew home last time. Still pissed off about that. :mad_guy:

    But yeah, you'll have a good one. (y)
